What I did on my summer vacation

In between working on Shapes + Form, the sock club, and all sorts of other knitting-related fun … I’ve been doing a little traveling.

I went hiking at the beautiful Mount Rainier where I saw a grizzly bear!

Later I went to Toronto and met up with my friend Alice Yu. (You can see me in her phone!)

It was my first time meeting Amandine who is super cute.

We headed to Lettuce Knit and ogled some yarn.

I went to the top of the CN Tower… here’s the view from the glass floor, looking down 1,122 feet to the ground.

The funky photo styling is courtesy of Instagram. I’m on there as cookieaknitwear.

Finally I went to Reno to visit my friend Kristi. We may have taken a side trip to Jimmy Beans Wool. They may have let us into the back. There may have been a LOT of yarn there.

Did you go anywhere fun this summer?

    It’s crude, but when I read “I went hiking at the beautiful Mount Rainier where I saw a grizzly bear” – I finished the sentence with “and I pooped my pants.” Which is what I would’ve done.

    We took the family van and did the Mt. Rushmore/Yellowstone thing. Loads of fun and not much time for yarn since I did most of the driving.

    Just in case you were wondering, that glass floor in the CN Tower can hold the weight of 14 large hippos.
